Q&A with CIPCUG Session 126

OneDrive

Roger Houston   Both of my Win 10 PC’s are locked from me. Seems that they are in an endless loop. Been over 3 hours. Could this be the win 1809 update? How long does it take? I am tempted to force a reboot, but will wait a couple more hours.

Andy Toth   Lisa and I both enter into Quicken. Currently we use/share the folder on her drive and I save backup to my OneDrive which she has access. Quicken has the option of opening a file. The issue is it does not recognize the OneDrive drive. Is there some way to get quicken to list this drive in its folder listing? I am using Quicken 2013 home and office.

Lisa Toth   How can I get rid of the little boxes that pop up on the left side of my FaceBook page telling me someone has posted something.

Lisa Toth   I need an explanation about RSS feeds and the like. I don’t know what happens after I select to receive something that way. How do I access the content I want etc.

Q&A Session 124

 John Weigle   I’m having problems using Save or Save As with the latest Word update. Either I forgot to save my stamp column for The Star this week or completely lost where the heck it went when I did save it.

John Weigle   If I try to save a Thunderbird email or email attachment on the My Documents folder (it’s on my E: drive, not the C: drive), I end up saving things to a folder on the desktop and then moving them to where I wanted to put them in the first place.

Q&A with CIPCUG Session 123

The unavoidable

Fred Krueger   I use Netgear routers and a Netgear extender to get Amazon Prime and other channels to my TV. I have an older router laying around that I discovered.  Would that router work better than an extender? It is a Netgear d3000.

Bob G:   I did mention that the only way to keep an Amazon Echo  secure was to not plug it in and not connect it to wifi. 🙂 Don’t feel bad, I didn’t listen to my advice either.
